my mediterranean (presented by adrian chiles) (2 episodes) includes …

Adrian Chiles converted to Catholicism ten years ago, but wonders whether his choice of church was an accident of birth and geography. If he had been born in Istanbul or Jerusalem, would he have been equally happy being a Muslim or a Jew?

1. … Next stop is Istanbul, where he has fun in the Grand Bazaar , and meets one of the last Jewish traders in the whole place, selling religious artefacts.

He travels to Jerusalem for the Jewish festival of Sukkot, and then moves on to Tel-Aviv to get drunk with a gay, atheist, Jewish celebrity chef. His final stop is an Evangelical concert by the Dead Sea, attended by Christians from all over the world.”

2. “Adrian observes the Sabbath with a Jewish family, but his brief flirtation with Judaism is cut short when he learns that becoming a Jew is not quite as simple as wanting to join.”
